Drama club to host trivia night virtually

PERTH — The Broadalbin-Perth Elementary School Drama Club will have a “Friends” trivia night virtually from 6:30 to 8 p.m. today to benefit the drama club, according to a news release.

The event will be livestreamed on the district’s Facebook page and the trivia game will take place simultaneously on the Kahoot platform, which can be accessed via a web browser or on the Kahoot app.

The trivia game will be co-emceed by BPES Principal Dan Casey and Assistant Principal Kerri Barker, who will be dressed in costume as characters from the TV show.

The team registration cost is $10 and can be completed through B-P’s MySchoolBucks program. The B-P students, families, and community members are welcome to participate.

Once the team registration is completed, an access code will be sent, which will allow the team access to play the trivia game on Kahoot.

The participating teams must have two devices to participate — one to watch the live stream of the event from the B-P Facebook page and another device to submit trivia answers on Kahoot.

The teams will compete in five rounds of trivia, each containing 10 “Friends”-themed questions, and prizes will be awarded to the team that wins each round.

In addition to playing trivia, the BPES Drama Club will raffle off several “Friends”-themed baskets, a 32-inch Roku TV, and a Keurig machine. The raffle winners will be announced after each round of the trivia game. The raffle tickets will cost $1 for one ticket, $2 for five tickets, and $5 for 15 tickets, and can also be purchased on MySchoolBucks links.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the B-PESDC, in support of their upcoming production of “Aladdin Kids.” The live musical show will take place June 4-6 on an outdoor stage being built at the BPES campus. Since the performance will be outside, the public will be able to attend. The tickets will be available for purchase on May 1.

Anyone who is not able to participate in trivia night but wants to support the BPESDC, can do so using the link on MySchoolBucks.
